An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Today's Song: Chalte Chalte from Pakeezah

Chalte Chalte from “Pakeezah” sung by Lata Mangeshkar

This song’s music was made by Ghulam Mohammad and lyrics by Kaifi Azmi. I think this is one of best songs in the classical/semi-classical genre. It is amazing in how it uses silence as an instrument! The music stops, but the melody goes on …. somewhere in the middle of this song! Lata has long regarded Ghulam Mohd. as perhaps the best music composer she ever worked with. I couldn’t agree with her more!

Enjoy the song below if you are reading this after Jan 17, 2007; otherwise play it on the left hand sidebar…
